Prince of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne has been forced to postpone the remaining two dates on his 2010 tour due to complications with an ear infection. The band has issued this statement:
“Based on advice from doctors, it is with great regret that Ozzy Osbourne is postponing the remaining two dates (Friday, December 10 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, MO and Sunday, December 12 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN). The multi-platinum Rock & Roll Hall of Famer has contracted an ear infection, complications from which will prevent him from performing. Tickets for these two shows will be honored for the rescheduled dates—Minneapolis: Wednesday, January 12 and St. Louis: Friday, January 14—and refunds are available at point of purchase.”
Ozzy’s 2011 tour dates are set to kick off January 16 in Omaha, Nebraska. Ozzy’s long time friend and musical collaborator Slash will open all the concerts on the second leg.
